Good finds in Nashville today.

I'm glad all you chapter members drive those high dollar dream rides; so us low life members can rob parts off dentside's and Slicks in Pull-a-part.
Today a buddy of mine & me; score on a big block 460 radiator; all engine brackets (a/c, Ps Alt ); bench seat; sun visors, all interior dash trim to include a nos dash pad; another 8 track radio (1976 model); and seat belts as well.
I consider it a good day. There also was a guy there pulling a Olds 455 motor from a 66 model cutlass I believe as well.

Even a decent Orphan swb was in the yard!!!!!!!

I just have to ask, whats the 8 track for?? The reason I ask is when I use to work on auto radios you couldn't give those away to be used. The odd thing for me years ago was that people wanted a am or am/fm over a really nice am/fm/8track . After cassettes came out there was excessive 8-track hate.

The Nashville pick-a-part does have a few dentsides in it. I got a bag full of little pieces for my 79 all for $5.00 .

Might have a engine for ya; will check with my buddy; his brother is big into
Cleveland; has acouple Windsor as well.

To us Pull-a-part is a great place to shop; in our town the folks think there scrap trucks are gold; verse prices down in Nashville.

As for the 8 track; I using/listening to one in my 65 F100; and will probably put this one in my Highboy. I got alot of 70's & 80's Rock as well as 60's country & 50's rock tapes. It just neat to see these young kids shake their heads in confusion on seeing a 8 track playing.

I'd really like a Cleveland, as that would be an odd mix in a van.

You are becoming a "Golden Oldie" Mitch, enjoy those 8 tracks. Just remember to keep those heads clean or you'll have enough ribbon to wrap Christmas presents for the next 10 years.

I know what you mean. I like the mellow sound of a good 8-track. Have you ever seen a record player for a auto? They were made a year or so in the 50s.didn't sell well due to skipping. Anyway I wanted to fix my 66 up like one would have been done in the late 60s. I used the original am and rebuilt it. I hooked up a fm converter so I could use a usb to fm adapter so I can play my mp3 files. . I have the output to a reverb unit that then goes to a old power booster. Its a wild sound. The beach boys song was written especially for a reverb unit. If you haven't heard the song on on a reverb radio you haven't heard it the way it was meant to be played. If the reverb unit is hit or bumped due to the road it sounds like a laser being fired from star wars. They got that sound from hitting a steel guy wire if I remember correctly, thats probably why it sounds similar.
